As reported by, the Senate Committee on Economic and Workforce Development held a public hearing and executive session Tuesday on a bill that would eliminate the personal property tax. The Joint Finance Committee last Thursday included more than $200 million to backfill revenue municipalities would lose over no longer being able to collect the tax that applies to business equipment. But JFC didn't include the actual repeal in its budget, necessitating separate legislation. Senate Bill 189 was first introduced in March. Sen. Duey Stroebel (R-Saukville) introduced a substitute amendment Monday. In this segment, Sen. Stroebel explains the bill and Sen. Brad Pfaff (D-Onalaska) expresses his support it but hopes the state can keep its commitment to keeping municipalities whole.
